    First time at Topaz, went on a coworker's recommendation. Ambience was nice, comfortable temp too! Service was outstanding, Cindy was on top of everything and friendly, even showed us the outdoor patio since it was too cool to eat out there! Shared 2 starters ,the bruschetta and kale salad, both were very tasty. I had the short rib, which was very tender and meaty. Only wish it had a bit more sauce. My husband had "the best pork chop ever!" Wish we had room for dessert because I'm sure it would have been great! Wine list was nice if a bit pricey. Would definitely go back!

    Topaz is consistently reliable. The one thing that has really changed is their carpaccio. DO NOT BOTHER. It is 6 see through slices of beef (wonderful), a mound of potato salad and a mound of greens. Both of the latter were delicious, but what a pathetic way to downsize this dish. Go to Brio, or Eddie Merlots for a much better version. Otherwise, there were no complaints. The special seared tuna of the night was outstanding. The beignets are always a treat.

    Our party of three had an extremely difficult time conversing because of the high noise level. We don't understand why an upscale restaurant as this is not designed for guests to be able to talk while dining. Interesting that you inquire about ambiance as we felt we were in a gymnasium during a basketball tournament! Once outside, we were able to finally converse: mostly about the noise level during our visit. This shouldn't be what is the primary take-away from a dining experience.

    We are regulars here and normally are very satisfied. I don't know what the issue was but it seems that a lot of things were off. While the server was one we had before and he is very friendly and accommodating, service was very slow this evening. We waited a long time to receive service and food orders were extremely slow to come from the kitchen. This is not normally the case here. Food was somewhat disappointing. Marinara sauce was the worst I've had, lacking seasoning and bitter. My wife's risotto special was ho-hum. For a final tab topping $100' we expected much better. Nonetheless, I will still recommend this restaurant as it is normally very good and any-place can have an off-night.

    I love Topaz! It is my favorite restaurant. Everything about this restaurant is what I look for. It is swanky, lounge like, and delivers phenomenal food and service. It is notable for its stunning patio and outdoor bar with fire pits and really cool seating, very reminiscent of the bungalows you see out in California and on exotic vacations~ which is a what really makes this so scenic and so special while making you feel like your a million miles away! Topaz is a must! You have to go there...whether it is a special occasion or you just are looking for something to make you feel extra special with the group you enjoy being with! Thank you Topaz~

    We have been to Topaz at least 8 times. This was by far a huge disappointment. We waited 20 minutes for the waiter to take our drink orders, another 20 to get our cocktails. Then it took at least 20 minutes for him to take our food orders. The halibut was overdone, dry. A huge letdown as that is my very favorite at Topaz. The service was the biggest disappointment overall.

    Topaz is a hidden gem in the south burbs. We met another couple there for our first visit and have been making a point of going back on our own. This latest visit was with friends and they too, love it. The food is great and the service fantastic. Owner makes the rounds of the tables to check that everyone is happy. For a more romantic atmosphere, be sure to ask for a booth. They have outdoor dining and that area was really busy. Definitely add to your list of places to try!

    My sister was visiting and I took her to Topaz as a special treat. We had a delightful time. Our waitress was very good and our meal delicious. The only negative was that there was a concert that evening and we were dining outdoors. It was quite noisy. However, it didn't alter our overall experience. Thanks.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    We were pleased to find the positive reviews to be spot-on. While the menu is not terribly extensive, our entire meal was fabulous. The calamari was served hot, which is, sadly, often not the case in many places. The remoulade and grilled onions accompanying it were excellent. Both my husband's filet and my skirt steak were cooked to perfection. The grilled corn with parmesan was delicious although, with no way to pick it up politely, it was a bit awkward to cut it off the cob with a steak knife. We seldom order dessert but beignets are a rare treat, and these did not disappoint. Served freshly prepared and hot with chocolate sauce on the side, took me right back to the French Quarter! To top off a great night, the service was impeccable.

    This was our first visit to Topaz and it was excellent. We were impressed with the range of selections on the menu and really enjoyed our dinner (highly recommend the whitefish). The staff was very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived to when we departed. We plan to go back soon and encourage others in the Burr Ridge area to experience Topaz. We have also visited the owners restaurant in Westmont called Amber which is also excellent!

    My wife and I went to Topaz for our 6th anniversary dinner. I have nothing but positive things to say. The welcome, staff, and food were all incredible. My wife is lactose intolerant and also pregnant. She had some specific cravings and the waitress helped custom order a dish that was exactly what she wanted. We had the pork meatballs for an appetizer and they were out of this world. I had the whitefish for my main course and it was the best I've ever had. We were not steered wrong with out dessert choice which was the flourless chocolate cake...YUM! Will be going here again for special occasions. Look forward to taking advantage of their wine list next time.

    We loved this restaurant! The atmosphere was very nice, great décor. We loved that we were able to get a booth to dine in. They had a choice of white or black linen napkins depending on your dress which is a classy touch. Service was impeccable. My water glass was always filled & you did not have to wait for anything. They continually strolled by to see if you wanted more bread. The mgr came by to ask how we enjoyed our meal which we felt was a very nice gesture. The food was excellently prepared. They accommodated my wife's gluten free needs & consulted w/chef on her specific choices to be certain they could be prepared gluten-free. The lamb chops were incredible, as was the salmon. Try the sprouts & fabulous asparagus! Awesome Beignets!

    Been here before and usually exceptional service. This time, the server was kind of a turnoff. Personality, a little rough and very unfamiliar with the menu. Numerous apologies throughout the evening. More than three strikes in one dining experience and you're out by my standards. I think this was probably a fluke. Food and service are normally outstanding here and the outdoor dining is great. Give it a try.

    Virtually flawless - the server was quite comfortable with my date and me sharing most of the meals, thus making it more like a 4 course tasting menu. Server also changed up one of the drinks on the menu to allow me to try something different - and it was phenomenal. (Basically replaced the pear vodka in the drink with gin, and it was refreshing.) Risotto and scallops were excellent, as were the salad. Other than an ok first drink, I can't come up with anything that was less than excellent.

    I've been to Topaz many times before and have never been disappointed. We visited again this week for a weeknight birthday celebration and sat outside because it was a lovely evening. Drinks, soup, salad and dinners were all wonderful. Service was very good; bread was offered regularly as were drink refills. A birthday party was also happening outside but the group was appropriately distanced from the other diners. We'll be back!

    A great restaurant with excellent service and food. The bread was great. The cold gazpacho was interesting. The warm soup was also great. I had the halibut special was phenomenal. The scallops were a bit salty which is why we took a star away. Dessert was great. Service was attentive and well done. Would highly recommend. Will be back.
